In Nancy Guthrie’s Discovering Jesus in the Old Testatment, the reader is led through the Old Testament, day by day for a whole year, in order to “see the beauty of Christ in fresh new ways.”
Only in recent years,” says Guthrie, “have I begun to understand that the Bible is one story of God’s accomplishing redemption through Christ. Honestly, writing this book was my way of re-orienting the way I have found instruction and hope in the Old Testament. I worked my way through the Old Testament asking how each passage pictured Christ’s person or work or pointed to a need that only he would meet.”
Here are 10 sample pages (pdf).
I’m most excited about this: Nancy Guthrie is also working on 5 books introducing redemptive history to women’s Bible study, starting with The Promised One: Seeing Jesus in Genesis that comes out at the end of July.
You can hear her discuss this planned series of studies in today’s The Connected Kingdom podcast.
